    As long as we give @sleeperpick the business when Oduro or Kolek do things well in our eyes, we all will be happy :cigar::chuckle:

    that said I saw the same video, it’s practice and means nothing but liked how Kolek made a shot off a screen like that.

    Minutes should be the exact same for the big fella so let’s see his progression. Some semblance of defense is not too much to ask for as an improvement. Yes he blocked Obi Toppin once we should put that picture in the Louvre. 4.9 and 3.9 for a starting big man While playing 0 defense is not good. Let’s hope he improves for wins sake and for Paulsens sake To save his job

    FYI. Just received the following.

    "George Mason’s basketball teams will be able to begin their seasons on November 25th per the NCAA Division I Council decision on Wednesday. Our men’s and women’s basketball schedules will need to be modified to accommodate the NCAA reduction for the maximum number of non-conference games (9 for the men, 10 for the women). The athletic department will communicate our non-conference schedules once they are finalized. The Atlantic 10 Conference will work with member institutions on the development of the conference schedule.

    Click here for more information on the NCAA Division I Council decision regarding the potential start of the upcoming college basketball season.

    A decision on whether fans will be permitted to attend games at EagleBank Arena will be made at a later date by the University in accordance with state COVID-19 guidelines."

    He had 3 blocks against Duquense ;).

    He started a little over half the games last year and averaged 16.8 mpg. If he improves his defense and Calixte hasn't improved much over his junior year, I'd suspect Oduro will get at least 24 mpg.

    Per 40 stats weren't too bad for him: 11.6 point, 9.3 rebounds.

    He definitely needs to work on footwork, positioning, and recovering when getting pulled out of the paint for sure. He's never going to be able to switch onto a guard and cover them, so we can forget about that.

    We have Henry taking minutes too and I would hope he is already better than Goanar was last year. Hopefully Paulsen can utilize a long lineup of Henry AJ and Miller so we can’t be so inept against other teams athletic lineups. But Greg made a layup in a video so I think he will be all A10 next year anyways

    Well said. I also think he lost some baby fat, it looks like he lost 9 pounds. I think he's going to be a nice piece going forward as long as he gets a little more "mean".

    Can somebody sneak a few yellow jackets into Josh's Adidas hightops? That should make him real mean! :mad:

    Curious to have seen his development last year if he didn't get injured, since he was pretty high up on the depth chart to start the season. He looked lively out there, but a bit erratic, trying to play too fast. I wonder if he would have settled in or not.

    The website has him listed as a sophomore, so I guess not?

    Lol sounds like the NCAA. We jump through our ass for Kier to get a medical redshirt, he played in more games, gets it and grad transfers. Dady who should have been a clear cut medical redshirt doesn’t get it when he only appeared in 2-3 games?

    Maybe a question for GK to ask DP?

    I'd bet the farm that Dady received a medical red-shirt and the folks that update the roster just didn't make the change to reflect that. What, did he play in 1 game? I think he still has his 4 years of eligibility.

    Somebody earlier said that the roster listed is based on academic credit and not eligibility.
